About the Authors
  • This collection explains developments within Beckett studies and why he has emerged as one of the most iconic writers of the twentieth century. It also proposes a new interpretive framework that explores both the expanded canon, which has doubled the volume of his works in the last ten years, and the new methods used to approach it. This book covers all the most recent approaches to the Beckett study, such as archival research, queer theory, mathematical readings of literature, neuro-scientific approaches, translation studies, and disability studies. These new approaches are shown to be relevant and necessary to provide a renewed understanding of the lasting value of Beckett's works.

    • Explores the recent developments within Beckett studies and the new approaches being used
    • Discusses Beckett's expanded canon, which has doubled the volume of his works in the last ten years
    • Presents the current state of the Beckett canon and the Beckett field with unprecedented clarity
